Professor Paul Steven Miller is the Henry M. Jackson Professor of Law
and the Director of the University of Washington*s interdisciplinary
Disability Studies Program. Prior to his appointment at the UW,
Professor Miller was a commissioner of the U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission and the White House liaison to the disability
community.

Program Description

The relationship between the medical and disability communities is
complex, multi-faceted, and influenced by historical, social, and
cultural factors. Although physicians, health care researchers, and
people with disabilities all work from the standpoint of wanting to do
what is in the best interest of disabled individuals, the notion of what
actually is *best* is often understood quite differently among these
constituencies. Professor Miller will examine questions raised by
genetics and the applications of genetic research from the disability
perspective and explore the implications for scientists, health care
professionals, and disabled individuals.
